Sustainability

Duynie Ingredients has a significant role to contribute to sustainable pet food production. Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do and our business is built around it. From the sourcing of co-products through to climate-neutral production.

Sustainable sourcing raw materials
Our ingredients are made from plant-based co-products, directly sourced from the food industry. Co-products are part of the raw materials which cannot be processed in the food industry, like beet and chicory pulp, potato cuttings, potato peelings and sidestream starch. Co-products are also a form of food loss caused by the food processing industry.

Climate-neutral production
Duynie Ingredients aims to produce climate-neutral by using residual heat and green electricity in the production process. In this way the environmental impact is minimized.

Environmental impact
Our ingredients have a lower environmental impact (e.g. carbon footprint and land use) than nutritional equivalent alternatives made with food grade raw material and processed with fossil energy.
